Any SQL guys here?

20 August 2014 - 09:18 PM

The TL;DR version is that I'm taking some SQL classes this fall and will probably need some big time help because I've done fuckall with it in my life. Obviously I'd reciprocate onto those who are able to help. :daydream:

Lumia 1525 or Note 4?

September is approaching quickly and my Note 2 is ready to be replaced.

What's the general consensus?

What is stopping a small community...

17 August 2014 - 05:52 PM

Kind of rant-y;

My parents live in a small town, and their local PC shop is closing on the 31st of August. It was a great place for people in the community to get their PC's upgraded, built, as well as other general PC tasks. They're closing because the owner needs to take care of their son (he needs round the clock medical care, I don't really know the details)

Other than the local ISP (They're not served by Comcast, Verizon or any other big company) sitting back twirling their mustaches saying, "Why would you want to stream TV over the internet when we sell you cable!) --is there really anything from stopping a small community doing what Chattanooga Tennessee did in laying their own Fiber network?

Most of the people in the community are for lack of a better term, tech stupid. They gladly pay obscene prices for their DSL

3/512 - $40
5/512 - $60
7/1 - $80
10/1 - $125

They offer a grand total of 22 channels of HD TV, and just over 60 channels of TV in total for an additional $70 a month. Long story short, they're getting fucked, and lost their only real representation from anybody that was at least semi-informed about this kind of stuff when that shop closes. I really feel like if all the facts were laid out, the community would go for it. Also, there isn't a bank in the planet that wouldn't support a 5 year ROI on a project like this. Say, $100 a month for gigabite internet, phone, and all the TV you could stand to watch while simultaneously offering the in-person consultation.

I'm actually considering getting all the requisite numbers, quotes, and information and making a 6 hour drive to their next town meeting. If nothing else, to save them from their current infrastructure hell and make their local ISP stop making them eat corn the wrong way.

Is it okay

To most nights after work (so, lets say 5  nights a week) to come home from work, go outside on the deck, play some Spotify and drink.

I don't get like, shit faced drunk, just enough to catch a buzz.
